Re: Too Hot To Fly

I went out flying yesterday in the heat and it was't that bad as long as you hid under the shade after flying. The wind was around 25 k's making it tolerable.

Re: Too Hot To Fly

Hey ... One advantage of the heat... It is really hard to crash with how thick the air is and all c*)%p in it here!

Ontario heat wave breaking temperature records
CBC News - Posted: Jul 21, 2011 1:09 PM ET
Downtown Toronto was the hottest city in Canada by 1 p.m. ET, hitting a high of 36.4 C.

The epicentre of the heat wave is southern Ontario, where the humidity was making it feel like 40 C already by 8 a.m. ET. In Toronto, by noon, it felt like 45 C.

The heat has also forced GO Transit commuter trains to travel slower than usual as a safety precaution because the metal tracks they ride on expand in the heat. The transit operator is warning that it could mean 10 to 15 minute delays.

"This is pretty impressive and pretty oppressive heat," said CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe, noting that the humidity will make temperatures in Toronto feel as high as 49 C on Thursday.

So all BS aside - yes it is hot and yeah I feel for everyone working outside today. I just came in and there guys out there laying asphalt and my kid is at his landscaping job laying paving..

Take care folks and mind the animals!

Go fly before it is too late!

Re: Too Hot To Fly

Yikes ! ! !

Just stepped outside. 38 C with a Humidex of 49 ! ! !

Brutal...And that's in the shade !

Lots of all time records being broken...

When the sun and wind goes down, I'll try taking my small foamy for the 5min. walk down to the park. And up my max temperature flying above 37 Humidex...
(I thought that was bad !)

I have flown in -56 Windchill conditions. (Very Painful !)

I might be able to get my extreme temperature flying range above 100 ! ! !

How 'cool' would that be?

Stay cool.

Take care,
Have fun,

Beats the all time high 37.3 C in August 2001. For Oakville.

Looking that Oakville statistic up, I found it curious, that all of the min/max records for every month of the year...only go back to 1998?

Look at the records for your area...
Then talk to your local 'Global Warming Denier'...

Re: Too Hot To Fly

My weekend is now driven by the weather -- I'm going to have to get up bright and early Saturday (maybe Sunday too!), walk out into the back garden and pick the bush full of red currants. The hot weather may be brutal on us but its making the berries doing Warp 9 towards ripeness.

I pick them, Angela makes the jam with my help, and then she eats most of the 20-plus bottles that the bush makes. Downside of being diabetic -- the red currant jelly is absolutely marvelous but more than a slice of bread with jelly at breakfast has me blowing 10-plus on the glucometer.

Rest of the weekend will be spent moving all the hobby stuff around the basement so I can seal the back wall before I put up the drywall after a master electrician's reviewed my changes to the circuitry (split the back half of the basement off of the main downstairs circuit, subdivided that into two sections and connected to seperate circuits, plus added more wall plugs -- prevents being totally in the dark when I fire up the powertools at the same time my wife is running the sewing machine or serger and we pop the breakers.)

Nice thing is that the basement is the coldest part of the house without any outlets from the furnace or having the basement door open.....

Re: Too Hot To Fly

My daughter and I mowed the flying field. Ha!
Then it was off to McD for a kids meal and some air conditioned funland climbing.
